In-House Lawyers - 9th June 2020

10 June 2020

This is now available on-demand.

As you might expect – our regular in house lawyer sessions aren’t happening for obvious reasons. No doubt you’re dealing with some of the issues around the current disruption – working from home, issues with suppliers, landlords, employees and their entitlements and getting funding for the business – no doubt that’s on your desk right now. But here’s the thing – it won’t always be. In a few months’ time, you’ll hopefully still be dealing with legal issues, but some of those will have moved on.

For that reason – to be up to date on what’s changed we’d encourage you to dial into an alternative virtual couple of sessions – dealing with the changes in the law that you’ll still need to know about. Book on now and relax knowing in the future (post-pandemic) you will still have the skills you need to survive in the marketplace.

  • An update on contract law – changes to drafting (as well as how to extract yourself if you need to) – Richard Nicholas
  • Employment changes – including the short and longer term effects of Furlough – James Tait

The sessions focus on practical solutions that you can utilise from home in your agreements and your dealings with business. Each session will last around an hour and will also include an opportunity to ask any questions that you may have. Please feel free to also send any questions you have in advance.

If you can't make our webinar please feel free to sign up as the webinar will be available on-demand after the live session, with links shared on our website and LinkedIn page.

“Red Tape” Reform and No-Fault Dismissals

The Government has announced a change to the categorisation of “small” businesses to reduce the amount of regulatory compliance (or “red tape”) required. Currently, SMEs (those with fewer than 250 employees) are exempt from certain regulations – such as the obligation to comply with gender pay reporting. With effect from 3 October, these exemptions will be widened to apply to businesses with fewer than 500 employees.
